Emergency Short-Term Loans
Students who have maintained a satisfactory repayment record are eligible to apply for emergency loans. These loans are typically used if a student does not have funds for a tuition installment payment as a result of an unexpected circumstance, such as the delay of awarded financial aid. For more information about loan options, contact the Student Accounts/Bursar’s Office. Short-term loan borrowers will be assessed a moderate service charge. All emergency loans must be repaid prior to the end of the semester or term in which the loan is borrowed. These funds have been made available through these sources:

The interest rate on money loaned is computed at an annual rate that does not exceed 5 percent.
